Great gala dress

This dress is so much better quality than it looks in the picture. The skirt is full and falls much more dramatically than a normal aline. Reasonable length and no need for a bra. I was worried the dress would be boring but it had a lot of presence.

Size up

Loved the dress. But the only way that was zipping up all the way was if someone stepped on my rib cage.

More cleavage than I expected to show in this dress, but overall gorgeous!

Stunning!

Dress is amazing! Was perfect for a black tie wedding! I received so many compliments! The dress is very comfortable. The pockets are a bonus. I'm 5'8" and I got the long. I wore a 5 inch heel and the dress was brushing the floor. I personally like my gowns down to the ground, but I did get stepped on a few times! Overall, a beautiful dress! Was sad when I had to take it off!

Great dress, not for short girls

I am 5"3 and 148lbs. It was a bit too long for me, even in heels. It was beautiful and flattering dress, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone under 5'4" (unless you are willing to put on very high heels). Pockets were a huge plus.

So elegant!

The dress I wore was a size 0R. At 5'3 and 110lbs, the dress was a little too big. Loose in the top and about 2.5" too long when wearing 2" platforms. I could have worn higher heels! Overall the dress was beautiful! Very comfortable. AND... did I mention it has POCKETS!! perfect for stashing lip color and chewing gum!

Confidence in a dress!!

I am very uncomfortable in my own skin after having a baby. The dress looked fabulous and I felt fabulous. It's very flattering and I got tons of compliments. I never show my cleavage and this dress is a little low cut but I actually felt more confident then I have in years. I am very impressed with the entire process and thankful for the confidence RTR gave me!!

So beautiful! Size up for backup

This dress was amazing. I’m currently between a 2 and 4. The 2 could be zipped up without a bra but it was too tight. I wore the 4 with a strapless bra and was comfortable all night long. Did I mention the dress HAS POCKETS? I think this dress would look good on all size bodies. It's super flattering. Wore it with Grandma's Closet earrings and Evil Eye Clutch.

Best for fuller chests

Oddly large and constructed bust looked awkward on me, even with a padded bra.

Classic silhouette!

Unfortunately too large in the body and the size down was not available in time for the event. Pros: Classic silhouette. Think fabric but not too bulky. Great neckline! Possibly long enough for us tall ladies (even with heels?)

Wore this to a black tie holiday party.

The dress was a little larger than I expected, and therefore kept slipping and was too long. I would recommend ordering a size down! However, it is very elegant and simple; I got a lot of compliments.

It was a bit too big.

I did not wear it. It was good on the waist but the top was too big.

I wore this to a black tie fundraising gala. It was really gorgeous and I got many complements. Wow

I had this dress overnighted as I underestimated the effects of postpartum body and breastfeeding on my physique and my original option didn’t fit. The folks at RTR were super helpful and kind even though I was stressed. I think this was a more awesome dress than my original choice. It fit like a glove and I felt confident and beautiful. Most of my clothes are 16, this was an 18. Overall, couldn’t be happier with my RTR experience.

High quality and elegant without being too flashy!

Loved having the opportunity to be one of the first renters of this dress! It didn't have any reviews yet, but my last Theia rental was a joy. This dress is great for busty gals. I'm 5'2 so it was admittedly long so I recommend stilettos. Heavy fabric, so you won't freeze if you wear this to a winter event as I did. And most importantly, hello pockets! Super convenient. I would rent this again - it's a RTR favorite in my book!

Super comfy and flattering. True to size. Will absolutely rent again.

Showstopper

I had to rent this in the long size because the regular was not available. I wore my highest heels but still had to hold it all night or else I was tripping over it (I'm 5'2). Besides that, this dress is amazing and super flattering.

Perfect Pageant Gown!

I absolutely LOVED this dress and got so many compliments on in throughout the night! (Especially love the bow & neck line) It was flattering, comfortable, and fit very true to size. The only concern I had with this dress was the bust area was a tad big and the material was too heavy for fashion tape but thankfully I had other materials to help fill the extra space. Highly recommend this gown for any occasion!

Stunning!

This dress is STUNNING. I felt like I should be walking the red carpet. I love formal dresses that stand out for all the right reasons, and this dress will stay on my (very short) formal dress rotation list. Nothing but compliments all night! For reference, I am 5'3", 127lbs, and 34C. Rent this dress, you wont regret it!

Good for taller women

Fit is true to size and I thought the dress was very flattering. I rented the 8L and it fit me perfectly-- without a strapless bra. With a bra, I could barely zip the dress. I suspect busty women might find the top a little snug.

Elegant!

The 2L was a lot longer than the 2R! The dress was so long that I wore 4" heels and it still lightly dragged on the floor. The gown is slightly longer in the back than in the front. Otherwise, the dress was beautiful and fit great.
